Privileged Identity Management

Privileged accounts exist on every server and operating system, business application, database, web service and network appliance in your organization. They allow anyone with access to them to control organizational resources, disable security systems and manage vast amounts of sensitive data. The abuse of such super-user accounts is expected to intensify in the near future because cyberattacks such as zero-day attacks focus on exploiting unsecured privileged credentials to move inside your environment freely.

Overview

Organizations have already acknowledged secure access to privileged accounts as a major security issue, which needs singular controls in place to monitor, protect, detect, alert and respond to all privileged account activity. As best practices dictate, privileged accounts need to be incorporated into organizations’ core security strategy. Privileged Identity Management (PIM) solutions enable organizations to consolidate identities, deliver cross-platform least-privilege access, control shared accounts, secure remote access and audit all privileged sessions while minimizing your cyber risk.
